Though there is no direct "next page" keyboard shortcut, the quickest way I've found to get there is by using the j/k shortcuts you mentioned in a slightly different way. Hold down j/k until you reach the last/first message in the list Release and then press j/k again It's frustrating there isn't a direct shortcut for this, but this workaround serves me ...
Jumping to the Inbox should be sufficient to kick off the refresh. The keyboard shortcut for that is g then i.
There is no Gmail shortcut to check for new mail in Gmail. I guess Google thinks new e-mails appear immediately in the ajax-based UI. Since it's not the case (I had the exact same issue as yours), I use my browser shortcut to reload the page (ctrl+R or F5). I'm aware this is not optimal as reload the whole page wastes resources.
Unfortunately not, though the shortcuts help page will be kept up-to-date as new shortcuts are added.
